It was great to watch such a free-flowing and open game of rugby at Twickenham yesterday (16th November 2019). The referee Tom Foley rarely had to stop the game, and when he did both teams chose to kick for touch and further possession when they were awarded penalties, which added to the entertainment. Having been behind 17-33, the Barbarians fought back to within two points at the end, making it a very exciting finish. The handling was impressive, and despite the cold the crowd of 51,213 left invigorated by a most enjoyable afternoon! I hope that the pictures below capture something of the entertainment and excitement.
